Dear All,

on behalf of our education manager, Angela Colliver,  I would like to
let you know that ReefED  - the  latest reef education portal of the
Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has been launched by the
Australian Federal Environment Minister Dr. David Kemp today.

ReefED is the world's largest on-line, curriculum based, interactive
resource about the Great Barrier Reef. It offers :
· Outcome focussed teaching resources linked explicitly to Key Learning
Areas and Australian State Curriculum Frameworks
· GBR Explorer – a comprehensive encyclopaedia of the Great Barrier Reef
- fantastic for assignments
· On-line action based participation activities such as Reef Guardians
Schools program
· On-line lesson plans
· Reef videos
· Images
· Video conferencing – students can speak to a diver underwater;
· Video streaming and Internet

The ReefED web site is powered by the BoaB Content Manager, a product of

The BoaB Content Manager is a database driven web site management
system, that allows ReefED staff to fully manage the web site by
changing text, creating
new pages and sections, uploading images, electronic download files and
much more. With a short introduction, new staff can be given access to
specific sections, with specific access privileges such as creating
content, reviewing content or making pages live.

“BoaB is ideal for organizations and companies which have high volumes
of information they want to publish on their web site. By simplifying
the updating
process, the BoaB system allows a client to keep a web site always
up-to-date without ongoing expenses.“
